Belavia to operate more flights to Kiev as from 12 November

MINSK, 5 November (BelTA) – Belavia will increase the number of flights Minsk-Kiev-Minsk starting 12 November, BelTA learned from the airline.

On 17 December Belavia opens a flight to Kharkov. "We are opening new flights with a view to increasing the transit capacity. The third daily flight Minsk-Kiev-Minsk and a new regular flight Minsk-Kharkov will make travel from Ukraine to Europe and CIS more comfortable and convenient,” the airline said.

Earlier Belavia flew to Kiev to Boryspil airport twice a day. The new flight will fly to the Kiev international airport (Zhulyany). Thus, passengers will be able to choose a more convenient time and the airport for their journey to Kiev. Flights will be daily, departing from Minsk at 23.05, from Kiev (Zhulyany) at 05.15 local time. The journey time is one hour.

"Early departure from Kiev and arrival in Minsk will help passengers, primarily business people, plan their time of stay in Belarus more rationally. The Belavia flight schedule will enable transit passengers to continue their travel using Belavia route network,” said Belavia General Director oAnatoly Gusarov.

With regard to the daily flight to Kharkov, Belavia will operate Boeing 737-500 on this route. One way ticket will cost €98, retune ticket €195, including taxes and fees. Departure from Minsk is at 13.20 (local time), from Kharkov 14.25. Flights will be daily. Travel time is 1h 35 min.

It was important for us that the representatives of Kharkiv International Airport were very interested in cooperation. Their visit to Minsk and the prompt resolution of all the issues related to the launch of the flight attest to this. Tickets for the flight will be available in the near future,” Anatoly Gusarov said.

Kharkov will be the third Ukrainian destination for Belavia. The airline offers its customers to take advantage of connecting flights via the National Airport Minsk.

Belavia is the largest air carrier in Belarus by the number of passengers and cargoes it transports. In January 2014 the Belarusian airline acquired a legal status of an open joint stock company. Belavia operates 27 aircraft, and offers regulars flights to 46 destinations in Europe and Asia. Belavia joined the International Air Transport Association (IATA) in 1997 and the European Regions Airline Association (ERAA) in 2010. In January-September 2015 Belavia's passenger traffic increased by 4% over the same period last year.
